Yahaya Bello’s ADC, security details detained by Police after former Kogi governor’s escape

The Nigeria Police Force has detained a female police officer who served as the aide-de-camp (ADC) to the embattled former Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

Alongside other police officers attached to Bello, the ADC is currently being held at the State Criminal Investigation Department in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Their detention comes in the wake of a directive issued Thursday night by the Inspector General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, ordering the immediate withdrawal of all police officers assigned to Bello.

Sources within the police force, speaking anonymously, revealed that the officers were apprehended on suspicion of aiding and abetting Bello’s escape from operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) who attempted to arrest him at his Abuja residence on Wednesday.

According to one source, “The ADC and the other police details attached to Yahaya Bello have been arrested and detained. They were arrested on the order of the IG, on the suspicion that they aided and abetted the former governor’s escape from the EFCC on Wednesday.”

Another source confirmed the detention to Punch, stating, “Yahaya Bello’s female ADC and other police officers attached to him were brought to the command this morning, and they’ve been detained for aiding and abetting (the governor’s escape).”

The order for the withdrawal of police officers from Bello was communicated through a police wireless message.
